Revelations in Spy Case

YEREVAN (Armenpress–Noyan Tapan–Yerkir)–The National Security Ministry of Armenia released new information about the four individuals (two male–tow female) arrested for spying for neighboring Azerbaijan.

During interrogations–it became apparent that one of the four spies participated in a plot to plant an explosive device in Yerevan’s Erebuni hotel back in 1993. As a result of technical problems–the explosive failed to detonate.

The ministry said it is continuing its investigation.

Immigrating to Armenia in 1988–the four (all Slavs) had succeeded in gaining citizenship–therefore were charged with treason.
